Developmental Screenings: Parents or other caregivers can use the Ages and Stages Questionnaires (ASQ3) to learn about their child’s development during early childhood. Each ASQ3 is a simple set of questions about some things your child may or may not be doing yet. These questionnaires are quick and easy to fill out and can provide valuable information about your child’s developmental progress until the child is 60 months of age.
